So much has changed on this photo - it's rather difficult to pick out landmarks that hevn't changed! St Peters Church is still there but the shipyards have all gone and the site now occupied by the National Glass Centre and Sunderland University. Much of the housing, especially around the church has also gone.



With the demise of shipbuilding in 1986 the river is now much quieter than even this photo. A complete change in the urban landscape over two generations!
